Distance Learning that Works for All Professions: A Model of Student and Faculty Engagement
Crafting effective interprofessional learning experiences can be very challenging. Often, creating opportunities in which students can learn “with, from, and about” each other may be difficult to orchestrate. The online environment offers new ways to educate students about core interprofessional competencies and to introduce them to team members and roles they may not encounter regularly in their education. It is essential that online materials represent different health professions accurately and provide practical information that will enhance teamwork. Delivery needs to align with technologies commonly used by students. The purpose of this presentation is to describe the development of distance modules that have successfully navigated these interprofessional challenges by fully engaging students multiple professions in their design.
